There's been talk lately that the Philadelphia Daily News plans to launch a free arts and entertainment daily geared toward the young, tentatively titled Sizzle. But some Daily News staffers doubt the new tabloid will ever make it to the streets, Mike Newall reports in Philadelphia City Paper. Cost-cutting by the Daily News's owner, Knight Ridder, has left so many desks empty that the paper's newsroom "resembles an Ikea showroom," Newall reports.
